    Ahoy! We are going on a Merry time Cruise 12/17. I am looking into taking my 11 yo daughter to Royal Court Royal Tea. Is she going to be to old for the tea. Also is the Cinderella doll that is given a barbie size doll or more like an 18 in doll?

    Welcome back, Lani! Sailing with Disney Cruise Line is always magical, but there is really something special about cruising during the holidays on a Very Merrytime sailing with Disney! My family and I have enjoyed a few Very Merrytime cruises and they just keep getting better! I see you live in Missouri. Well, then you know about chilly winters, like we have here in Ohio! So, all the better reason to head south for a warm weather trip with Disney this December!

    Your 11-year old will love the Royal Court Royal Tea if she enjoys Disney princesses like my daughter! While there do tend to be many more little princesses there, the age limit is 12, and I've seen girls of all ages singing and dancing along while enjoying royal treatment at this special event.

    Besides the lovely tea party treats and princess fun, each child receives quite a few gifts to remember the occasion. Girls receive a Cinderella doll (about an 18 inch size), an autograph book and pen, princess jewelry box, charm bracelet and necklace, and a tiara. Check out the promo video for the Royal Court Royal Tea in this Disney Parks Blog post so you can get a visual idea of the party and gifts. Maybe that will help you determine if your daughter would enjoy it!

    Have fun planning, Lani!
